August 31st, 2018. Gunnerside, Swaledale.
Another early start to arrive in Gunnerside at sunrise. Weather conditions were much
improved from my previous visit and I was able to quickly gather a handful of useable
August 23rd, 2018. Keld and Gunnerside
Unfortunately the ‘smart object tool’ that I’ve used until now to create the News
page will no longer be supported by the software manufacturer after next week so
I’ll need to find an alternative; very irritating.
Anyway, I made a return visit to Swaledale today, primarily to do some location scouting
around Gunnerside,, but, if the weather wasn’t looking promising, my contingency
plan was to head for the waterfalls at Keld. There was heavy cloud cover at sunrise,
so I headed straight for Keld and East Gill Force. It’s a great number of years since
I’d photographed this waterfall; that was in the days of film. My current effort
was not nearly so good as that picture, but a least the red berries of a foreground
tree provided something better than a straight shot of the waterfall.
Gunnerside is a work in progress; I’ll need to return when the lighting is better,
but at least I’ve an idea now of the shots I want.
